Title: Aaron's new Idle Stance

It has been decided that the 2D segs of this game will maintain the high-quality graphics that the 3D segs have. So I've also decided to do revamp the animations while I'm at it. Since this will mainly be used for battle, I found it to be fitting that Aaron have his game face on instead of the smile. This time around I also went for a pose that seemed better suited for action. It's no boxing or kung-fu stance, but it does seem much more appropriate than his previous, over casual, hand-on-hip "conversation" pose.

If it looks unbalanced tell me, and let me know why.

It's a really important pose, because apart from the run-sequence it's likely to be the pose that you will see him in for most of the time.

Also, here is a triple jab, each animation goes into and from the above pose.

love the model, but the face looks a little off to me I just can't put my finger on it. Looks good non the less.

Well if you ever find out what it is don't hesitate to let me know.

Also here are some animations of him attacking with a weapon:

I like how you're animations are nice and quick. It makes them very exciting to watch.
Also I think it's the eye's they bulge out as if they're ready to explode ( 0.0 KABOOM !) ;)

EDIT: I just fixed like 3 comments of mine with spelling and grammar mistakes, what is happening with my language with week XD

 Yeah. Looks really good. I don't play a lot of games, but that looks 'ready to go' to me.  ;)
 Cool game-character, Great movements and the 'ready stance' obviously works.
 good one fromsoysauce.  :)

Nice work. Is your game engine something you made or third party software?
Title: Re: Aaron's new Idle Stance
Post by: fromsoysauce on May 06, 2013, 03:30:03 pm
The game is made on Game Maker 8.0 using the Ultimate 3D DLL.

I was wondering if you had plans to do a pseudo-3D using pre-rendered images like Baldur's Gate, Septerra Core, or Diablo I & II. There are a few good engines out there to accomplish that type of gaming and many are free. I believe you are talking about the Game Maker by YoYo Games? That is a great engine to use. Keep up the great work.

I was about to say Baldur's Gate wasn't prerendered, but I was thinking of a sequel to it :P lol
